         In the US, people prefer waiting for a table to sitting with people they don't know. If you are sitting at a table with people you don't know, it is impolite to light up a cigarette without first asking if it will disturb them. At American restaurants and coffee shops you are usually served tap water before you order. You may find the bread and butter is free, and if you order coffee, you may get a free refill. Most cities and towns have no rules about opening and closing times for stores or restaurants, though they usually do make rules for bars. Especially in large cities, stores may be open 24 hours a day. Servings in restaurants are often large, too large for many people. If you can't finish your meal but would like to enjoy the food later, ask your waitress or waiter for a "doggie bag". It may have a picture of a dog on it, but everybody knows you're taking the food for yourself. Supper and dinner are both words for the evening meal. Some people have "Sunday dinner". This is an especially big noon meal. Tips are not usually added to the check. They are not included in the price of the meal, either. A tip of about 15% is expected and you should leave it on the table when you leave. In some restaurants, a check is brought on a plate and you put your money there. Then the waiter or waitress brings you your change. 

    (     ) 10. Which statement is TRUE?

    A. American people like sitting with people they don't know.

    B. Americans prefer smoking to tap water at the restaurants.

    C. Bread and butter and coffee are free at American restaurants.

    D. American people usually will not smoke unless they ask for permission.

    (     )11. Sunday dinner is_______.

    A. a dinner in the evening       B. A big noon meal

    C. a big lunch on Sunday        D. A supper on Sunday

    (     ) 12.What do American people always do when servings are too large for    them? 

    A. They leave the food on the table and go away.

    B. They ask the waitress or waiter to keep the food.

    C. They take the food home with a "doggie bag" for their dogs.

    The Great Wall of China, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was enlisted in the World Heritage by the UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, the Great Wall winds up and down across deserts, grasslands and mountains, stretching about 6,700 kilometers from east to west of China. With a history of more than 2,000 years, some parts of the Great Wall are now in ruins or even entirely disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions around the world.

    No one can tell for sure when the building of the Great Wall was started, but it is popularly believed that it originated as a military fortification(要塞) against intrusion by tribes on the borders during the earlier Zhou Dynasty. Late in the Spring and Autumn Period, some states extended the defence work to prevent the attacks from other states.

    It was not until the Qin Dynasty that the separate walls were connected to form a defensive system by Emperor Qin Shi Huang. After the emperor unified the country in 214 BC, he ordered the construction of the wall. It took about ten years to finish and the wall stretched from Gansu Province to Jilin Province. The wall not only served as a defence in the north but also symbolized the power of the emperor.

    Further construction also experienced several dynasties. The present Great Wall in Beijing is mainly remains from the Ming Dynasty. Today, the Great Wall has become a must-see for every visitor to China. Few can help saying “Wow” when they stand on top of a beacon tower and look at this giant dragon. It has become a national pride of Chinese people.

    7. The underlined word “appealing” probably means “______”.

    A. huge          B. attractive          C. ordinary        D. moving

    8. In the Qin Dynasty, ______.

    A. the construction of the Great Wall was finished in 204 BC

    B. the emperor wanted to invade other minor states

    C. the defensive system of the Great Wall was separated

    D. the Great Wall began its way from Jilin Province

    A dam is a man-made structure built across a river. Most dams are built to control a river’s water flow, improve navigation and control flooding. However, some dams are built to produce hydro-electric power.

    Hydro-electric power is produced as water passes through a dam, and into a river below. The more water that passes through a dam, the more energy is produced. Once a dam is built, a man-made lake is created behind the dam.

    Electricity is produced by a kind of equipment called a turbine(水轮机). Turbines contain metal coils(线圈) surrounded by magnets(磁铁). When the magnets move round rapidly over the metal coils, electricity is produced. Turbines are located inside dams. The falling water makes the magnets go around the coils.

    Dams provide clean energy, but they can also harm the environment. Species that use rivers to reproduce are often hurt by dams. In the Northwest of the US, the population of fishes has dropped from 16 million to 2.5 million since hydro-electric plants were built on the Columbia River. Dams all over the world have hurt some species. 
      The highest dam in the Unites States is located near Oroville, California. The Oroville Dam towers 230 meters and is more than a mile wide. This dam was built in 1968, 22 years after the Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam, on the Nevada-Arizona border controls the Colorado river. It is 221 meters high and has 2.6 million hectare-meters of water.

    The highest dam in the world is the Nurek Dam on the Vakhsh River in Tadzikistan, a country in central Asia. This dam is 300 meters tall. 

    4. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?              

    A. Some dams are built for controlling a river’s water flow.

    B. Hydro-electric power is usually produced through a dam.

    C. Dams can offer energy and they are harmless to the environment.

    D. Generally speaking, where there is a dam, there is a man-made lake.

    5. The third paragraph mainly tells us _____.                        

      A. how hydro-electric power is produced   B. What a turbine is and how it works 

      C. how the magnets and the metal coils work

    D. how the falling water passes through a turbine                     

    6.The dam which controls the Colorado river is ____.                  

    A. the Oroville Dam  B. the Hoover Dam  C. the Nurek Dam  D. the Vakhsh Dam

       It was a quiet village in which there was a military camp(军营).It was far from the towns and cities and there were some high mountains around.

The American shook his head and the waiter understood that he didn’t want tea. So he took it away and brought him a glass of milk. The American shook his head again. He was very hungry now and looked sad. He was just going to leave the restaurant when another man came in. When this man saw the waiter, he put his hands on his stomach().

    Companion(同伴)robots are playing an ever-increasing role in helping busy people look after the elderly and children. With an aging population and an increasing labor shortage, the demand for companion robots for elder care and children’s companions is on the rise.

Xiaoyuzaijia aims at white-collar people who are busy with their work and spend less time accompanying their family members. It builds a bridge among family members and satisfies the emotional communications needs of modern people,” said Song.

    Yuan Wenhui, chairman of Zaijia, said the company will offer personalized service in the family healthcare and children's education sectors, based on big data algorithms, aiming to be an indispensable intelligent family housekeeper in the future.

A phrase book can help expand your vocabulary, but hearing the sounds of the different spoken words is an excellent activity that can be done right in the comfort of your home. You can see movies in the new language or listen to the tapes or CDs. You can also download some listening material from the Internet. Just spending 15 minutes a night will improve your language skills.

    When you arrive in the new land, begin by greeting new friends in their own tongue. This may come easy or it could take some time to learn, but it’s interesting. If you can’t do this, then it means that you will need more practice and patience to learn these very important words. You can go out during the day and begin one-one-one conversations with shop owners, business-men hand taxi drivers. This should not be one until you have learned some of the most common phrases, but one you begin to go shopping in a second language your communication skills will start to improve rapidly. You can also watch the local TV or listen to the local radio. For example, the advertisements(广告)will help you recognize the correct pronunciation of local street names.

    25. What does the underlined word “tongue” in Paragraph I refer to?

       A. language             B. sign           C. vocabulary         D. greeting

    26. When could a traveler start one-one-one conversations with local people?

       A. When he has mastered enough grammar rules

       B. The moment he steps in the place he is visiting

       C. After he has many movies in the local tongue

       D. Once he has learned some of the most common phrases

    27. What’s the last paragraph mainly about?

       A. How to prepare for traveling

       B. How to enjoy oneself during traveling

       C. How to learn a new language during traveling

    Think about the different ways that people use the wind. You can use it to fly a kite or to sail a boat. Wind is one of our cleanest and richest power sources, as well as one of the oldest. Evidence shows that windmills(风车) began to be used in ancient Iran back in the 7th century BC. They were first introduced to Europe during the 1100s, when armies returned from the Middle East with knowledge of using wind power.

     For many centuries, people used windmills to grind(磨碎) wheat into flour or pump water from deep underground. When electricity was discovered in the late 1800s, people living in remote(偏远的) areas began to use them to produce electricity. This allowed them to have electric lights and radio. However, by the 1940s when electricity was available(可利用的) to people in almost all areas of the United States, windmills were seldom used.

    During the 1970s, people started becoming concerned about the pollution that is created when coal and gas are burned to produce electricity. People also realized that the supply of coal and gas would not last forever. Then, wind was rediscovered, though it means higher costs. Today, there is a global movement to supply more and more of our electricity through the use of wind.

    28. From the text we know that windmills__________.

       A. were invented by European armies

    B. used to supply power to radio in remote areas

    C. have a history of more than 2,800 years

      D. have rarely been used since electricity was discovered

    29. What was a new use for wind power in the late 19th century?

    A. Producing electricity.           B. Sailing a boat. 

      C. Grinding wheat into flour.       D. Pumping water from ground.

    30. One of the reasons wind was rediscovered in the 1970s is that______.

    A. the supply of coal and gas failed to meet needs

    B. it is one of the oldest power sources

    C. it was cheaper to create energy from wind    D. wind power is cleaner

    31. The passage is mainly about______________.

    A. the global pollution from burning coal and gas

    B. the worldwide movement to save energy

    C. the history of using wind power        D. the advantages of windmills

    Correctly understanding the signals that people give away with their body language is a useful skill to understand what they are really thinking, regardless of what they are saying. But research has proven that some body language is often misunderstood.

    The Eyes of a Liar

    Most people say that someone cannot look another person in the eyes and lie, but that is not true. It has been found that some liars have no problem staring someone in the eyes and lying.

    And what about people who avoid eye contact (接触)? Are they dishonest? In fact, nervousness and shyness can make people drop their eyes, even when they’re telling the truth.

    Eye Contact is Good

    Many believe that more eye contact is better. However, directing a fixed stare at another usually makes the other person uncomfortable. Eye contact that lasts a few seconds is best for showing attention and sincerity. Any eye contact longer than that may be regarded by the other person as rude or aggressive.

    Hands Behind the Back

    Some people mistake a person putting their hands behind their back when standing as a sign of power. This type of body language is actually not a sign of strength but that of someone who is not trustworthy. People like to see a person’s hands in order to know what they are doing with them. To gain others’ trust, a person should keep their hands front.

    Fast-Talkers Can’t Be Trusted

    Many people have been faced with, a fast-talking salesman who has tried to fool them into buying something. But fast-talk doesn’t necessarily mean someone is trying to bamboozle you. On the contrary, slower speakers who take too many pauses may be trying to make up details as they go along.

    Remember to take all things into considerationcultures, societies, personal habits—and use as much information as possible when judging another person based on his or her body language.

    32. Which of the following is true about eye contact?

    A. People who avoid eye contact are dishonest.

    B. Proper eye contact shows attention and sincerity.

    C. A long stare at others is considered good manners.

    D. Looking into someone’s eyes can make them tell the truth.

    33. When communicating with others, we should keep our hands front to       .

    A. show our belief in them                                            B. defend ourselves from harm

    C. show that we can be relied on                                        D. prove that we are powerful

    34. The underlined word “bamboozle” in the last paragraph can be replaced by “      ”.

    A. impress                          B. attack                                   C. approach                       D. cheat

    35. What can be the best title of the passage?

    A. Ways to Use the Right Body Language

    B. Misbeliefs about Some Body Language

    C. How to Judge a Person by Body Language

    D. Body Language Gives Away Your Real Thoughts

    With schools far away and little money to pay for transport costs, children in many developing countries like India and Kenya walk long distances to school. The situation is even worse for girls, who often experience violence on their way to school. So girls are often kept at home helping with the housework.

    However, World Bicycle Relief is helping to change that. It is seeking to change girls’ lives through the power of the bicycle.

    Bihar, is the poorest state in India. Until 2007, too many teenage girls in Bihar were dropping out of school. But, that same year, World Bicycle Relief began offering bicycles to girls to help them get to school. And the results are measurable. A 2016 study found that providing bicycles to teenage girls in India increased school attendance by 28% and increased academic (学术的) performance by 59%. Loise Luseno is a 16-year-old girl. Members of her family work as farmers. They earn just about $ 30 a month—not nearly enough for food, school costs and transport. In the past, she had to get up at 4 a.m. and walk about 15 kilometers to reach school. Last year, she dropped out of school because of the distance. But, a few months ago, Luseno went back to school—this time on a bicycle.

    The positive influence has led to further projects across Africa, South America and South-East Asia, resulting in a running total of over 320,000 bicycles in the past ten years.

    “Bicycles reduce the safety risks for girls because the girls get to school quicker. It also helps parents not to lose work time taking their girls to school.” Christina Kwauk, an expert on girls’ education, explains. She calls the bicycle programs a low-cost and very promising solution, saying that many organizations in wealthier countries would be happy to provide this kind of resource.

    28. All the following stop girls in developing countries going to school except       .

    A. transport costs                                                               B. long distances to schools

    C. safety risks                                                                     D. girls’ poor academic performances

    29. What is the aim of World Bicycle Relief?

    A. To help poor countries to raise education levels.

    B. To expand bicycle markets in developing countries.

    C. To allow girls in developing countries to have access to school.

    D. To encourage wealthier countries to donate more bicycles.

    30. What does Paragraph 3 mainly tell us?

    A. World Bicycle Relief has made a great difference in India.

    B. The educational conditions of Bihar have been improved.

    C. Indian families are thankful to World Bicycle Relief.

    D. Loise Luseno is lucky to return to school.

    31. What is Christina Kwauk’s attitude toward World Bicycle Relief?

    A. Unconcerned.                B. Optimistic.                      C. Unfavorable.                  D. Curious.

    Hachiko is a national hero to the Japanese. Several movies have been made about him and his moving story.

    The amazing story of Hachiko took place in the 1920s. After being adopted in 1923 by Eizaburo Ueno, a professor at Tokyo University, Hachiko soon became the best friend with his new owner. Eizaburo loved his dog above all and treated him as his son. The two of them were inseparable (亲密无间的).

    As Hachiko grew older, he started to see his owner off to work in the morning at the Shibuya Train Station and went to pick him up in the afternoon. On May 21, 1925, the two-year-old Hachiko was sitting by the exit at the train station waiting for Eizaburo as usual. Sadly, his owner never showed up.

    It turned out that Eizaburo had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage (脑出血) and died unexpectedly while at work.

    Hachiko moved in with a former gardener of the Ueno family. However, throughout the rest of his life, he kept going to the Shibuya Train Station every day, regardless of the weather, waiting fruitlessly for the return of his beloved owner.

    A major Japanese newspaper picked up the story in 1932. Soon, Hachiko became well known all over the country. In 1934, a statue of Hachiko was put up in front of the Shibuya train station. One year later, on March 81935, Hachiko passed away peacefully on the street outside the train station.

    Hachiko is now on display at the National Science Museum in Tokyo. In front of the Shibuya train station, where the faithful dog waited patiently to meet his master every day for ten years, Hachiko’s statue has been a popular attraction. Every day, hundreds of people come to learn about the dog’s moving story and have their photographs taken with him.

    25. What made Hachiko a Japanese national hero?

    A. Movies about his story.                                            B. A major Japanese newspaper.

    C. A gardener of the Ueno family.                                       D. His devotion to his owner.

    26. What can we learn from the passage?

    A. Hachiko’s body is kept in a museum in Tokyo.

    B. Hachiko stayed at the train station for ten years.

    C. Hachiko lost his owner the year he was adopted.

    D. The statue was set up one year after Hachiko died.

    27. What’s the purpose of the passage?

    A. To attract more foreign tourists to Japan.

    It is 8:45 a. m. and a line of hungry children eagerly await breakfast outside a classroom. Moments later they burst in, running over to a table covered with cereals, spreads, milk and juice to enjoy a satisfying, healthy breakfast.

    This is familiar for Cannel McConnell, founder of The Magic Breakfast, a charity that delivers morning meals to children who would otherwise go without.

    Ms McConnell created her organization 16 years ago after hearing from school staff that they had to feed their pupils before lessons started, as many were so hungry as to sleep in class.

    The Magic Breakfast has a simple goal: to remove child hunger in the mornings by 2020. It is an example of one of many organizations using fresh produce to handle food poverty.

    The charity has 200 partner schools in the capital and another 280 across the rest of England. There are 60 London schools on the waiting list. On average, 49 pupils receive breakfast in each school, meaning the charity helps 9,800 young people in London every day.

    Ms McConnell says the Magic Breakfast has made a notable impact: “Every morning pupils come in, eat breakfast and socialise with one another. In terms of their academic development, they are sharper as the breakfast gives them the energy to get through the day and to learn.”

    When asked about the obstacle to their goal, McConnell says, “The big thing we need, quite simply, is cash. The consequence (后果) of child hunger is that they will fail at school and we have to deal with fallout. Feeding hungry children so they can learn is no tough task. Breakfast is an ideal solution. As well as cashwe are looking for firms to donate food. I’d love for people to support us. And I’d love for us to proudly say we have sorted this problem out.”

    28. How does the writer introduce the topic?

    A. By giving an explanation.

    B. By describing a scene.

    C. By analyzing causes.

    D. By making comparisons.

    29. Which of the following is not mentioned about Ms McConnell’s organization?

    A. Its difficulties.                                                           B. Its purpose.

    C. Its influence.                                                            D. Its staff.

    30. What does Ms McConnell mean by saying the words in the last paragraph?

    A. She’s calling on more people to help with her charity.

    B. She feels greatly concerned about the future of her charity.

    C. She’s confident of providing enough breakfast for British children.

    D. She feels proud to have solved the problem of child hunger in England.

    31. What can be a suitable title for, the text?

    A. Hungry children: a tough problem for London

    B. Free meals: a way to remove child hunger in England

    C. The Magic Breakfast: a charity feeding hungry school children

    D. Carmel McConnell: considerate founder of The Magic Breakfast

It felt like my best friend was moving away. I was at a loss what to do. My time with Gambit came to an end when my best friend and faithful companion moved on to a higher calling. He will help a blind person to be independent.

    Gambit taught me that there will be things in life that you may love but have to give up.
